Vinyl Scratch is the third case of Fluxford. It takes place in the entertaining and neon district of Partying Portico.


In the nightclub, Damien and the Player investigate a murder that occurred in a nightclub. The duo discover the body of DJ Karina Kisstal, a vinyl record in her neck. In the first chapter, the Player suspected three people: nightclubber Skylar Baynes, nightclub owner Tristan Ponce, and goth anarchist Mallory Muerte-Oscura. It was also discovered that the killer collects vinyl and uses a humidifier. At the end of the first chapter, the two were informed about a pasttime the victim had and did while she wasn't turning tables: motorcycle racing.

In the second chapter, Damien and the Player check out a garage where the victim's motorcycle was. In the second chapter, two more people are suspected of the murder: motorcycle racer Sonata Moon and male stripper Jordan Miami. It is also known that the killer knows electronics. At the end of the third chapter, there was a call of a disturbance at the nightclub.

In the third chapter, Damien and the Player resolve a dispute between nightclubber Skylar Baynes and nightclub owner Tristan Ponce about Baynes' overdue bill. After getting that resolved, the duo continue to build up evidence until eventually arresting motorcycle driver Sonata Moon for the murder.

Sonata and Karina were best friends when they were kids, and were planning on being athletes together. Sonata and Karina were messing around in the locker room, she blatantly threw a pipe, breaking her leg. Instead of fessing up, she said that she tripped and broke her accident. Ruining both girls' dreams of becoming an athlete, Karina nonchalantly became a DJ while Sonata became a motorcycle driver, barely moving her leg. She wanted revenge.

Sonata was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

After the trial, nightclub owner Tristan needs The Player's help hiring a new DJ. He asks for the Player to recover a number that she used as a back-up in case she called in sick. The Player finds a number belonging an earlier suspect Penelope Arlew. She happily accepts the new job.

Elycia also has suspicions on one person; Mallory Muerte-Oscura. After finding a laptop filled with information on various tourists met in previous cases, they find out that she is going to an arcade event. The duo head there.
